The tulips are finally starting to be in bloom on the allotment, hurrah! And there are loads of yellow butterflies which is lovely to see too – although of course rather less lovely if growing veg, LOL.
The daffodils are still producing a crop, and now the smaller multi-bloom highly scented ones are out, so that’s just amazing.
And, to cap it all, the lilies have started to sprout, hurrah:
The rhubarb looks much larger today:
And the currant bushes are leafing up which is very positive too:
Whilst there, K planted shallots, and I planted pompom dahlias (in the hope they’ll do better than the other ones have) and the first of the gladioli bulbs. To my shame, I didn’t store the gladioli bulbs correctly over the winter (oh the horror!) and they have rotted as they weren’t dry enough. As a result, there were only enough for two rows and we’re going to have to get new ones. I shall try to remember to be kinder to them next year …
Here is the harvest of lilies, daffodils, beetroot and some sprout leaves from plants that didn’t work out:
And here are the vases at home:
